What is CSA?

ommunity Supported Agriculture is a business model that allows the consumer to buy a share of farm produce before the harvest season begins. Every CSA is different, but Bialas Farms CSA Farm Share Program is a convenient way to support your farmers while feeding your family the best and freshest local products you can buy.

Your one-time payment in the spring allows Bialas Farms to grow and harvest over 100 different seasonal items. In exchange, you will receive the best and freshest produce each week from mid-June until mid-October with no additional payments. The Free Choice option may be utilized as long as the farm stand is open, usually until December.

The FarmGirl carefully selects a seasonal assortment of 8-12 items to include in each weekly share. She makes her selections based on seasonality, flavor profile, and abundance, often keeping with a culinary theme. The majority of your share will be vegetables, but you'll occasionally see some just-harvested fruit.

Types of Farm Shares

Our Large “Farmer’s Choice” Shares contain a nice mix of veggies to feed a family for about a week. Small “Farmer’s Choice” Shares contain the same products but in a lesser quantity and should feed a couple and perhaps small children, depending on eating habits. We also offer a Biweekly Large Share that is distributed every other week.

Bialas Farms’ signature “Free Choice” Declining Balance Shares offer members the flexibility of purchasing homegrown produce from the Farm Stand on their schedule and to suit their family’s preferences. If a regular weekly share seems daunting, our custom Declining Balance share would be ideal.

Before each distribution, all members receive The FarmGirl Cooks‘ weekly email newsletter, listing what will be in the shares that week. Free Choice Share members may choose to purchase some or all of the regular share items and try out the recipes included. The newsletter highlights some details about farm conditions and anything exciting we have coming up, plus the occasional members-only discount code for seasonal treats.

Eat Like a Farmer

You’ll receive many carefully curated recipes and tips that work perfectly with your farm share box. Should you find that your schedule has you out and about with no time to cook, no worries! Kasha will explain how to care for and preserve your harvest so you can use it later. The goal is for you to learn how to eat like farmers and get the most value from your purchase.

Thank you for being a part of our family’s farm journey. We hope you enjoy getting to know your farmers. Your support helps ensure local produce and family tradition for future generations.
